Travel Journal Workshop #1 at Yellow Wood
Apr 13 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Back by popular demand! On Saturday, April 13, local artist Bela Roongta will merge three of her passions – travel, journaling and making art – into a fabulous workshop designed to empower you with the tools needed to create your own meaningful keepsake.

What is it?
A travel journal uses mixed media – photos, clippings, found items and your own written memories to create a journal that will allow you to relive your adventure for years to come.

What to expect:
Bela was kind enough to extend her traditional hour-long workshop into a 1.5-hour format, allowing more time for us to get inspired by some of Bela’s works, discuss ideas with the small group and take some time for personal reflection and practice.

What to bring:
Yourself! No need to prepare anything ahead of time. If you plan to start a journal to memorialize a trip you’ve already gone on, you’re welcome to bring photos and ideas with you.

Bela is offering this workshop to friends of Yellow Wood at the very special price of $25 (normally $75). Registration includes a journal and pen.

What to know:
Each session is limited to six people. The last workshop we hosted filled quickly, so early registration is encouraged!

Email sarah@yellowwoodgear.com to register.

HISTORY of GREEN DAY IN THE BAY
Now in its 12th year, Green Day in the Bay was started by local residents Gwen Koscinski, Julie Erickson, and Bob Kuesel who were interested in celebrating green and healthy activities in the village. Complimentary to Earth Day, (Earth Day’s history originates in Wisconsin as well – founded by the United States Senator from Wisconsin Gaylord Nelson in 1970), Green Day in the Bay provides a forum for Whitefish Bay residents to explore the three “R’s” of environmental awareness: reducing, reusing, and recycling.

Known for its beautiful lakefront setting, Whitefish Bay benefits from parks, beaches, and green spaces with stunning water views. But residents realize that with that privilege comes some responsibility as well. Green Day in the Bay serves as a conscious reminder that what we do in our community affects one of the world’s largest freshwater resources, Lake Michigan.

In addition to the clean up and weed out efforts on Green Day in the Bay, family teams volunteer for weekly beach clean-ups throughout the summer season when the beaches are most used. Whitefish Bay residents are stewards of the lake, and exhibitors at Green Day in the Bay offer information on green and healthy living not only in the village, but also connect us with our Great Lake to the east and our world community.
